Just seen your post and I think you'd have more luck getting response from any of the Taunton ladies if you posted on our current Bristol meet thread which is entitled "Next Bristol Meet" as this is an old thread that probably will get missed.
Good luck in getting something set up in your area.
I realise that this is an old thread, but I would really like to meet up with others in the Taunton area and saw that 2 of your group were coming from Taunton. I am still working and cannot drive (due to drugs) so meeting up in Bristol means making a lot of other arrangements but I would be prepared to arrange meet ups in Taunton if anyone else was interested
sorry to have left my confirmation so late but I will definitely be there. So sorry that you are having such a rotten time, Marmite and sorry too that Lynne can't make it.I finally have some hair to show off!
so sorry i wont be with you all as i still have a bad cold .hopefully we will all be able to meet up soon .enjoy yourselves .see you soon .x
Just bumping this up as only 3 of us have confirmed so far! Hope more than 4 of us will be able to make it at Browns,Bristol tomorrow from 11.30 onwards.
Looking forward to it.
I'm still hoping to come at the mo.. Have been very tired lately but hopefully should be ok to make it.
Looking forward to seeing everyone who can make it.
Hello again ladies!
So sorry but I can't make it after all. My child care has fallen through and my phone calls to my friends have not been very successful. Am very gutted as I was looking forward to it.
Hopefully next time.
I think I will have to come up 'under my own steam' again 😞 😞 Sorry Celeste, but I have to see someone coming to see me about some more work at 10 and I know they're bound to stay at least an hour - but if no-one minds I can be up there by probably around 12-ish. Just go ahead and order (like last time!!) and I'll catch up with you all! I have to leave around 2.15 as well in order to be back for school etc - it'll still be worth coming though to see everyone, old and new! Looking forward to it!
I've booked the table for about 10 - can we all confirm that we are coming please - apart from marmite who is indisposed - just to be sure. Thanks
Hi aroma I do hope you and your friend can make it - because as you say it would be good to meet up - such a lot has happened since last we met.
Sorry to hear you are still confined marmite - get that laptop working quicko - take care mate - thinking of you.
might not be able to make it as today ive got a cold starting ,hopefully it wont come to much but will try to make it seems ages since we all met up .x
Hi Marmite, really sorry you're having such a tough time at the moment. I hope you begin to feel loads better once you've had the lung drained and the pleurodosis (sorry but not quite sure what that entails).
Look forward to seeing you again soon, take care.
Eileen, really hope you're feeling well enough to come along, would be nice to see you again.
Sorry girls but I have been in hospital since last Sunday and allowed home for a short break this weekend. Next week I will have my lung drained but this may take several days and then pleurodosis carried out, therefore will probably be in hospital until Thursday. Have a nice time and I will see you on the next get together.
Table booked for us all - I'm counting 10 I think - in the name of Brown for the 27th January at 11.30.
Anyone wishing to go online and sign up to become a Browns friend - there is a special offer 2 courses and a bottle of wine for 2 is £28 (I think)
Looking forward to seeing you all there - for all new women - just look for a group of stunningly attractive and interesting women!
Hi seaofserenity(lovely name by the way)and Sabraan, Glad you're going to join us. You will both be made very welcome and it will be nice to see some new faces.
Looking forward to meeting you both.
I'd love to meet up with you all. Started my chemo yesterday so hoping I'll be more than up for it by the 27th - just very nauseous and tired now. Have not long had my MX and my diagnosis two months ago so this is all very new to me. Looking forward to hearing from your experiences.
Hi guys ru still meeting up in Browns on the 27th Jan. If so I'd love to join you. I live in Bristol and frequent Browns on a regular basis. I've been battling my cancer for 9 years I'm new to the forum but I would love to meet up with other people in a similar situation.
well - i ~Hope it goes ok marmite - all i seem to be doing at the mo is lying around being exhausted - goodeness knows whats going on.
see you soon x
Will check the site again next week and will then book the table at Browns, top of Park Street for 11.30 if that is Ok for everyone.
Have been feeling rough for last couple of days but better today.
Have had both CT and bone scan over the last 2/3 weeks. Bone scan showed 2 small spots on ribs either side and quite a lot of fluid in lining of left lung again. So had a sample drawn off on Tuesday to test, which will take 2/3 weeks to come back. So assume going ahead with chemo next week. I now find that once the steroids have worn off I am exhausted for a few days and just have to lie around.Most unlike me.
Hope to see you all on Wednesday 27th.
Welcome m1yu 🙂
Brown's is the restaurant/bar with all those steps, at the bottom of the triangle / the top of park street, next to the museum & art gallery, so to get there from the whiteladies road, you just head into town half a mile or so.
Do come along if you can, you will find it really supportive
Not sure what stage i will be at by then, hoping to get a date for surgery tomorrow.
I am newish, primary + bone secondary diag in June, 09. But only discovered this forum a few weeks ago.
I live in bristol and would like to join you ladies. But I'm due to meet with my onc that day, not sure the exactly time yet. If I can make it, would like to meet. Let me know where you usually meet. If it's not too far from my clinic (healthcare at home) on Whiteladies Road, I can pop in before or after my app.
I'll need to leave by 2 really to get back for 'home from school' time.
There seem to be quite a few new secondary ladies on the boards - anyone local to Bristol who would like to come and join us? We always have a really good time - we're very friendly and don't bite at all!
Hope everyone is doing ok
Count me in for this. Will be lovely to catch up with everyone again.
I will have to leaveat 2.30pm at latest though as teaching in Wales at 4pm so could we go back to our original meet-up time of 11 or 11.30ish?
Thinking of you all and hoping you're all doing ok.
hello all ,im up for the meet up ,just say where and when .hope all are doing ok after such hard news over the festive period ,we will raise a glass to our dear friend debbs .x
Sounds Ok for me. Not sure if I will be able to drive then due to bandaging for lympheodema but if this is the case I am sure I can get a lift.
Will repost in a couple of weeks to see how many to book for. Quite happy to book for somewhere else if anyone wants it.
It seems a long time, and a lot has happened since we last met. So calling all secondaries (and primaries, who are used to scary secondary speak!), who can travel to Bristol. Two of us come from Taunton, one from Wales and one from Bath, and various others from all over the place. I suggest we meet at Browns on the 27th January, unless anyone has any other thoughts.
